Acer Launch Manager for Windows 10




WHAT IS LAUNCH MANAGER - WHAT DOES IT DO
It seems that no more Launch Manager downloads available for latest Acer notebook which pre-installed with Windows 10. Some of you might asking why we need to install it, What actually Launch Manager do?. The main function of Acer Dritek Launch Manager is to display particular function on your Screen/LCD whenever you pressed certain key or hotkey on your keyboard. A simple example and a very good reason to use Launch Manager is when you press the CAPS LOCK key, it will display an icon on your LED/LCD screen showing CAPS LOCK is ON or OFF.

We use hotkey a lot to change our Laptop setting such as Fn + F8 to mute and un-mute,  or Fn + left or right Arrow to change Volume if you are using 15 inch laptop.  Without Launch Manager, when you press the mute button, there are no LED light or any indicator saying your laptop is mute or not.  Further more, without launch manager, when you increase the volume using the hotkey, you will only see a single horizontal bar. With Launch manager you can see A speaker ICON with volume Bar.

Launch Manager Driver/Application for Windows 10.
Acer only uses Dritek Launch Manager, and even it is part of drivers downloads, it is only a software and Windows Version compatibility normally doesn't effect the requirement for installation.
You only need to install Windows 7 Version of the Launch Manager, I use it on my Acer E15 (E1-511-C8QG) and it works just fine.

  3. Hi,
    I managed to solve the problem, just download the drivers (according to the machine of your notebook / pc) e-Power and Quick Access there you: Install first Quick Access> Then e-Power> Restart your Notebook / PC and wait A few moments to start all the programs> In my Aspire ES-571 returned to work

  4. I have been looking for a proper launch manager for days but this one doesn't work either. On both Windows 10 home and Pro it says that the system is not compatible. Setting the setup file to Windows 7 compatibility doesn't work either.

    1. What is your Acer model, maybe you need to use different version so your actual model could help me to locate different driver version for you to test
